Our story began when a classroom teacher tried to answer this question, "How can we help all students succeed?"
Fresh out of graduate school, looking to change the world, I felt there was something I was missing. Something I was not doing or doing incorrectly! No matter how hard I tried some of my students were still struggling and in some of my classes many of my students struggled.
Like all teachers, for years I have taught students who struggle academically, but it was clear that we needed tools to use in heterogeneous classrooms. Something that would move the needle for underperforming students while also empowering those who were achieving, and everyone in between. I also saw the need for adoption of evidenced-based tools across subject areas and grade levels - content-agnostic tools for use in diverse classrooms were missing.
It is from this place that our story began to unfold. Organized Binder is an evidenced-based content-agnostic system that creates an organized, structured, and dependable classroom with clear expectations and routines. This system gives students exposure to the noncognitive skills, executive function, and mindsets that are the hallmarks of successful learners. As a result, in all subject areas and at any grade level, students are thriving.
I founded this company to widen the impact Organized Binder. We are honored to work with K-12 districts and networks as well as colleges around the country and internationally. The testimonials and data are overwhelming. Schools are increasing their scores, EL and Special Education students are reporting huge gains on high-stakes exams, and initiatives such as PLC's are finding needed continuity and cohesion. In addition to empowering students, Organized Binder helps educators in analog and digital classroom be more efficient and effective!
Organized Binder exists in many versions for use in traditional K-12 and college settings as well as nontraditional academic settings. Please visit the Products page to learn more. Each version of the system has supporting Guides for educators, students, as well as parents, guardians, and tutors. Included in every purchase is access to the Organized Binder Dashboard which hosts everything needed to be successful implementing the system. The Dashboard includes all system files (for use in a digital classroom), all related Guides, our online User Guide (online training), Survey links, recorded webinars, and more. If you have any questions our FAQ page may help, if not please email us and someone from our team will respond within 24 hours.
